National Yacht Clubs David Gorman reaches All Ireland Helmsman’s Championship Final.

Representing the Flying Fifteen class at the Helmsmans Championships in Lough Ree at the weekend David Gorman, with Chris Doorly crewing, reached the final and finished a credible 7th overall in an extremely competitive fleet.

There were two flights of 8 boats on Saturday each with three races and the top three in each qualified for the final automatically. David had two thirds and an unfortunate retiral which meant he had to do the repechage qualifier on Sunday where there were two places in the final up for grabs. This he did by winning the race in very windy conditions.

The final was to be four short races but with the weather deteriorating only two were sailed. David got two fifths in the close racing but as the scores from Saturday were carried through he finished 7th overall. A great achievement in a top class fleet of Olympians and national champions in a boat he was unfamiliar with.

Many thanks to the SB20 class for lending their boats.

The RYA Northern Ireland 29er Youth Nationals were raced in mixed conditions September 29-30, 2018 on Belfast Lough hosted by the Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club. This event also represented the third and final leg of the 29er Irish Triple Crown. The 29er is one of the fastest growing fleets in Ireland.

The windy conditions resulted in a display of high speed capsizes and tight battles with four different race winners over the five races. In the end, Leah Rickard and Luke Rickard with two bullets on the final day emerged as the 29er RYA NI National Champions.
